And no one understands that better than your Atlas Professional Van Operator and crew. They know just how your valuable items should be packed, handled, and transported. They are skilled in best practices to make sure your precious items arrive safely in your new home.

Antique TransportBefore you move, your Atlas Account Representative will come to your home and survey your belongings. Point out things that may need special attention, such as fragile porcelains, family heirlooms, and valuable antiques. Whatever the item, your Atlas professional knows which packing materials and methods work best. Your Atlas Account Representative will schedule a time for packing that fits your move schedule. The more breakables you have, the more you should rely on the packing expertise of Atlas.
